obama did when he became president in 2009. his first official act as president was to sign a directive ordering that off-shore prison we've been maintaining in communist cuba should be shut down. he said it should be shut down within a year. it was the second part to that order though. the president also ordered at the same time that there be a review of every case of every prisoner at that prison to determine what should happen to him. should they be prosecuted, set free, should they be sent home but sent home to rison? should they be held on to for trial for a while longer to pretend they weren't there or why the prison needed to be in cuba? those reviews for every prisoner all ordered by the president at the same time as part of that very first thing that he did as a new president. and it is interesting, since he has been president, not a single new person has been sent to that prison that we keep in cuba. there have been no additional prisoners added. but obviously we have not closed it yet either. there were 2 h 2 people in prison there when president obama took off. the
